  • Keep your trash

     My name is Elizabeth Dennis Owen. I live on Flatlick Road. You don’t know me but there are times when you are driving by, you toss your garbage and it lands in my front yard.

    Sometimes you are walking when you have garbage you want to get rid of. 

    I don’t throw my garbage in your front yard but if you would like for me to return the favor, just send me your address. I will see what I can do to accommodate you.

  • Vote for Belcher

     I have known Linda Belcher for over 40 years. She and late  husband (Larry Belcher) were dedicated educators since 1970. She taught school, was an assistant principal and a principal, and was director of transportation in Bullitt County.

    She continued in working in education as an instructor at U of L.

  • Thanks from HOPE

     The board members of HOPE of Bullitt County would like to say thank you to those who took their time to help make our program a success.

  • Audit worth expense

     I feel the money spent on the recent county audit was money well spent.

    I like specifics and there were none.

    It may be classified info but being a tax payer and if we have a right to know, then tell us what’s going on or what we’re missing, if anything.

    We’re all adults here I hope. Whenever there’s only one person in control of all the financial paperwork we’re asking for trouble.

  • We don't need help

     Several comments made in this article (Jan. 1, about new Shepherdsville firehouse) caught my attention.

    The article states, “Eventually, Troutman ( Chief Layne Troutman) said the growth along Highway 245 may require a small station in that area.”

    Apparently Chief Troutman has not been out to the Highway 245 area in some time. We have a Wonderful seven (7) bay, state of the art fire station located next to Bernheim Forest.

  • Thank you

     To each and every one that donated to the benefit for St. Jude Children Hospital at ValuMarket in Mount Washington, from the bottom of my heart. I will never forget your kindness.

  • Don't hurt Medicare

     Under the new tax plan about to become law, the resulting deficit will trigger Medicare cuts under existing pay-as-you-go rules. 

    The cuts would reduce payments to doctors and other medical service providers causing some to choose dropping Medicare patients. AARP has presented a letter to Congressional leaders urging them to prevent this catastrophe.

    Nearly 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 each day over the next 15 years and those of us long past that age will tell you how vital Medicare has been to us.

  • Impact of insurance

     Kidney disease impacts thousands of Kentuckians. As a social worker, I take on the role as an advocate for my patient’s. They rely on me to ensure they receive the care they need and are treated fairly. Healthcare continues to be a hot topic in the media, but there is one little known issue that deeply threatens my patients’ access to care.

  • Support the mayor

     WOW, I could not believe my eyes, when I walked out to my paper box and got my wonderful Pioneer News paper and saw one of the headlines, that stated, “BROWN CALLS FOR MAYOR TO RESIGN!” 

    After reading the article, I could not understand, why former council member Brown would even consider that. Let me tell you why, I could not believe that. It was both Mr. Brown & Mr. Hatfield who pushed all of our GREAT CITIZENS to call the council and appoint Mr. Hockenbury to fill the remaining term of Mayor Scott Ellis. 

  • Homeless situation

     Increasing numbers of homeless people are living in our community  -- Bullitt County, Kentucky. Families are living in substandard shelter, and in some case they are living outdoors. Parents and children are being split up in order to acquire safe shelter. Children are hanging out at local restaurants and the library just to have a warm, dry place to spend their afterschool hours, if they are even in school. This is a problem in need of a good solution.
